    “My son began tutoring with Mrs. Donaldson for help with the transition into middle school along with organization assistance. After just a few weeks we saw a huge difference in his organization skills and increased confidence. He VERY MUCH enjoyed and looked forward to tutoring two times per week. There is no doubt my son’s successful middle school years were attributed to this. She very much got to know him as a ‘person’–she played off his strengths and helped him with his weaknesses.”
